Entering the Billionaire Club

Drake and Jay Z have a song together. It’s called Pound Cake. On Pound Cake, Hov’s homie states, “Hov, it ain’t many of us.” Admittedly, it’s unclear if Hov’s homie was speaking about the lack of diversity amongst the world’s billionaires, but the statement applies. Of the 1,800-plus billionaires on this planet, less than 1% of them are black.

Might be time to affirmative action our way into *billionairism.

*Might not be a “real” word.
